Lyrics[2]

  • Standing in the shadows of love
  • I’m getting ready or the heart aches to come.
  • Standing in the shadows of love
  • I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come.
  • (can’t you see me) standing in the shadows of love
  • I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come.
  • I wanna run but there’s no place to go
  • For heartaches will find me I know.
  • Without your love, a love I need
  • It’s the beginning of the end of me.
  • Cuz you’ve taken away all my reasons for living
  • When you pushed aside all the love I’ve been giving.
  • Now wait a minute!
  • Didn’t I always treat you right
  • Now baby didn’t i, didn’t i, didn’t i?
  • Didn’t I do the best I could
  • Now didn’t i, didn’t i?
  • (don’t you see me) standing in the shadows of love
  • Getting ready for the heart aches to come.
  • (can’t you see me) standing in the shadows of love
  • Doing my best to get ready for the heart aches to come.
  • All alone I’m destined to be
  • With misery my only company.
  • It may come today, or it may come tomorrow
  • But it’s for sure I’ve got nothing but sorrow.
  • I thought your conscience would kinda bother you
  • How can you watch me cry after all I’ve done for you?
  • Hold on a minute!
  • I gave you all the love I had
  • Now didn’t i, didn’t i, didn’t i?
  • When you needed me I was always there
  • Now wasn’t i, wasn’t i?
  • (don’t you leave me) standing in the shadows of love
  • I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come.
  • I’m trying not to cry outloud
  • Cuz all this cryin’ it ain’t, it ain’t gonna help me none!
  • Now what did I do, girl, to cause all this grief?
  • Now what did I say to make you want to leave?
  • Now wait a minute!
  • I gave my heart and soul to you
  • Now didn’t i, didn’t i, didn’t i?
  • And didn’t I always treat you good
  • Now didn’t i, didn’t i?
  • (don’t you see me) standing in the shadows of love
  • I’m getting ready or the heart aches to come.
  • (repeat to to fade)
